I remember having to deal with this self-same issue with SciTE
extensions. The issue is often that the actual event happens in
another thread, but must be raised in the main GUI thread. In that
case, I had a worker thread that read output from a process, which
then posted a message to a little hidden window, which could then
raise the event safely; there is an equivalent GTK mechanism.

I can post the SciTE extension code if anyone is interested.
